Class Visit-Parent Involvement Month

For Parent Volunteer Month, Mrs. Smith asked parents to come in for a visit and share with students how they use math in their professions/daily lives.  Dr. Anjell Edwards, Assistant Principal, at Hewitt Trussville Middle School, shared with students in Mrs. Smith’s math class (Mrs. Peters’ homeroom) about how she uses math while working at the school.  A few things she mentioned were telling time to create class schedules, reading a calendar to plan the schoolwide calendar (Friday Freeze, holidays, and testing dates), and adding subtracting, multiplying, and dividing money when working on the school budget.

Fun with Writing!

Students in Ms. Maldonado's class engaged in a fun writing assignment! They wrote letters to Dr. Jeter expressing their thoughts and defending their reasoning for why "students deserve a second recess time." Dr. Jeter read through the letters and visited the class to share her thoughts! Hats off to Ms. Maldonado's class for their outstanding work!!
